is talking, want to go through the female house members on the house armed services committee. good morning, tom. caller: good morning, c-span. thanks for taking my call. when can we expect these militant feminists like obama or those in the senate to demand that all the women at west point meet the identical standards that the men are required to meet? as it stands now, the standards for the women are substantially lower. and if the women were required to meet the same standards, a majority of the women at west point, they would be expelled immediately for failure to meet that standard. now, i would expect all those militant feminists in the senate to demand they meet the same standards. when can we expect to see that happen? guest: so i'm not really familiar with the requirements of west point. but i do know as part of the conversation of allowing women to be in combat that they have to meet the same physical standards as men do. mean, this is -- this is like for everyone's safety that women carry out the same kind of physical tasks that men can. whether or not that leads to a larger perc

. the moment of opportunity and optimism that i want to start with. the reason the president obama made that statement is because we have a combination that together is something that could turn the tide on epidemics. we also have a national strategy that the white house about a couple of years ago and provides a roadmap. more than a million people are living with hiv in the united states. for the last decade, they have been at the same level and perhaps more alarmingly, you and infections are rising by those who represent 66% of their infections in the united states. the impact is quite alarming. they have a heavy reliance on medicaid. most are not on treatment. yet, as i was alluding to, there is new data that shows we can actually get to what many of us are calling treatment that is scaled up. it has made a huge difference in helping people live much longer and healthier and has been shown to reduce the risk of transmission by as much as 96% and that is very significant. treatment has clinical benefits in a public health benefit. but where are we in providing treatment in the united
